The mention of strange airline names in the last issue of ABTN has precipitated the largest postbag ever if postbag is the word to use in this electronic age.
First prize must go to BUG AIR. Say it slowly. Actually it does not exist but it conjures up sitting in airport lounges all around the world. In this category number two would be Airweego. Again said slowly.
The following are some further suggestions:
American Flyers' Airline - it existed for many years.
ATS Vulcan - Bandierante from Aberdeen to Liverpool. Deceased.
BudJet - the proposed original name for ValuJet, but the Budweiser brewer Anheuser-Busch complained.
Buzz - off. Or told to go by Ryanair.
Deer Jet - a Chinese airline based in Beijing.
FAT - cargo outfit.
Gaylan Air Cargo ”- Iranian 1970s.
GOAWAY - Indian airline with a message
Hot Air - from Southend a long time ago.
JetsGo - a Canadian carrier that has taken the advice of its name and gone.
JMC - Thomas Cook is better.
Madair - now Air Madagascar.
Suckling - a pig to deal with, but don”t tell Myrtle.
Tiny Airlines - from Mexico we think but so small we can”t find details.
Wimbi Dira Airlines - out of Kinshasa.
Wizz Air - in the USA 'wizz' is a euphemism for visiting the loo.
White Knuckle Airways and Fly by Night Airways were names registered for operators of small aircraft in the USA and can be found in FAA microfilm tapes of aircraft registration documents.And of course Song, Ted and Zoom in more recent times.
